Hello Mebrat Tzehaie,

Really good job with your pages.

I'm a television-journalist and documentarist. I was looking for informations about Eritrea and Dahlak-Archipelago. I found them on your pages! Many thanks.

I hope local authorities in Eritrea might help us to make some great naturalistic and touristic documentary-films at your country. Thanks a lot for your homepage.

Sincerely, Diego.

Thank you very much for the great web-site.

I work with a women named Eritrea, and when she told me her name was spelled like the country my first reaction was that we were not understanding each other's English.

If you have time, can you please tell me what I can do to make her feel more happy this Christmas? (I think her and her daughter is very isolated in Canada)

Thank-you, Meli

Beste Hans en Mebrat,

Onze school houdt in februari een project " Landen in deze wereld". De Eritrese families Fesehasion en Abraha hebben hun kinderen bij ons op school. Groep 8 en hun leerkrachten hebben Noord-Afrika, toegespitst op Eritrea, gekozen, mede omdat Johannes (Tesfay) Feshasion deel uit maakt van deze groep. Mede met zijn ouders en zus Almaz gaan we het project opzetten. Jullie bericht heb ik ontvangen. We zullen de informatie van het internet betrekken en ons voordeel er mee doen.

Met vriendelijke groet,
Henk Mesker, directeur en mede leerkracht groep 8.

Dear Mebrat Tzehaie

I cannot empasise enough how pleased I feel to browse through this Page. I was born in Asmara myself and lived in Eritrea upto 1967.

You have certainly rekindled old and very fond memories of the country, its people and its traditions.

I have been living in England since 1967 and luckily I can now get 'berbere' and all other ingredients which I have also introduced to my own family in this country.... and they love it.

I wonder if you could perhaps give me the recipe of how to prepare 'injera'. I will like to hear from you and of Eritrea.

With sincere thanks
Costas Stylianidis

I truly enjoyed the pictures you have posted. for a person who just came back from 3 month trip to Eritrea. I appreciated the pictures on the children selling gum and "soft" on the street the most. I felt, it served an educating tool. In reviving awarness amongest, Eritreans who are living outside Eritrea, and never seen it for themselves.

I was an orphan child at the school of nursing in Asmara. Than I went to Comboni for four years before I came to America. I lived in Asmara from 1956-1969. I have lost contact with everyone and every thing that was part of my life in Asmara. Thank-you again for a wonderful trip and contact with something I thought was lost. Tonight my daughter and I had a beautiful evening walking thru my Asmara and the new Asmara. it is as beautiful as I remembered it to be.

with great heartfelt thank-you
and great love from a sister

I lived in Asmera when I was little. My father was stationed on Kagnew Army base. His name was captain Joseph Warnack. I lived there in 1962 and 63. Although my memories are few, I still recall how wonderful the people were. I would love to go back and see it again. I wonder if the house we lived in is still standing. It was across the street from a church where the road circled around it. It was off base and down the street.

My wife and I plan to travel to Asmara in 2002. We will continue to reference your Website and keep updated on the latest news.

Thank you,

Thank you for the lovely view of Eritrea. I am a Minister and I plan to locate my mission in Eritrea to help those in need. Because of you I am able to reach through mail the company that offers tapes on learning the Trigrinya language. This was my concern until I viewed your website.

God bless you!

Dear Hans and Mebrat,

Great overview of Eritrea . . .

Very close friends of mine are Eritreans from Asmara. I am going to their house very soon for some lamb Zigini and coffee . . .

Now I know to bring some popcorn to add to the coffee ceremony. I feel very fortunate because they will teach me how to make the Zigini and Ancheta.
